According to a senior Health department official, the patients will be able to book their ticket seven days prior to the date of visit. They won’t have to pay any fees for availing the online service. But in case of a patient visiting the hospital OPD for booking a ticket, he/she has to pay Rs 2 for buying a ticket. There will be separate options for different hospitals and medical colleges. The patients will get to know the details about the doctors of a department as well. They will also be able to register their preferences while booking a ticket. The patients will have to get a printed copy of the ticket once they successfully complete the process online. At the time of hospital visit, the patients will have to submit the printed copy at the designated counters of the hospital.
